It is possible to reinterpret the above stochastic discount factor with IES = 1 and atemporal risk aversion [gamma] > 1 in terms of a representative consumer who has IES and risk aversion both equal to 1, but where now [gamma] > 1 measures his doubts about the stochastic specification of his model for consumption growth and cash flows.
This resulted in a problem similar to a constrained MDP with possibly unequal discount factors, which was solved heuristically by introducing a weight parameter [xi] for risk and value.
